Kyle Singler has weight-training goals for the offseason.
Singler is expected to work on his game in all areas and there should be "improvements in all aspects," according to strength and conditioning coach Arnie Kander. Singler will also work on his stamina and conditioning before he enters his sophomore season.
Andre Drummond is expected to work out with Hakeem Olajuwon during the offseason.
Previously, Drummond had "reached out" to the legendary big man, but now the two are expected to spend some time together. "I'm really excited for next season," Drummond said. He's already back in the practice facility, and time spent with "The Dream" will only allow Drummond to further grow his game. He's not going to be 20 until August.
The Pistons will interview Knicks assistant coach Darrell Walker for their head-coaching vacancy, sources tell ESPN's Marc Stein.
Prior to joining Mike Woodson's staff in New York, Walker was an assistant in Detroit for three seasons. Walker would be the fifth candidate to interview for the position, following J.B. Bickerstaff, Nate McMillan, Mike Budenholzer and Lindsey Hunter.
There is "no leading candidate" for the Pistons head coaching vacancy, sources told MLive.com
Mike Budenholzer, currently an assistant with the Spurs, is gaining some steam with his candidacy, but Nate McMillan was deemed the frontrunner earlier in the process. It's not clear where things stand now, but the Pistons don't appear close to making a decision.
Pistons strength and conditioning coach Arnie Kander wants to work with Brandon Knight on his "process for changing speeds."
"Slowing way, way down. Getting better at the task, but more importantly getting better at what's between tasks," Kander said. "The greats, they have incredible control, with the hesitation, holding the ball, lulling you and then exploding." Knight has a ways to go to develop his point guard skills, but the comments from Kander would seemingly indicate that the team wants Knight to develop at point guard after flirting with him at shooting guard last season. According to team beat writer Keith Langlois, Knight's role for next season is uncertain.
Rockets assistant J.B. Bickerstaff will interview for the Pistons' head-coaching vacancy Wednesday.
J.B. is the 34-year-old son of longtime NBA coach Bernie Bickerstaff. He joins a wide-open candidate list in Detroit that also includes Nate McMillan, Mike Budenholzer and Lindsey Hunter. Bickerstaff has no head-coaching experience at the NBA level.
J.B. Bickerstaff has been added to the "list of candidates" for the Pistons head coaching vacancy, according to Marc Stein of ESPN.
Bickerstaff is an assistant on the Rockets staff, and with Detroit casting a wide net in their search, there is nothing to suggest the team is closing in on its next hire just yet.
